For the first time ever fans of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining can take a trip down memory lane in an upcoming festival. That’s right! The Timberline Lodge, mostly also known as The Overlook Hotel in the 1980 iconic film is hosting the new four-day event in April.
The Overlook Film Festival is expected to showcase experiential events, exciting work in new and classic horror cinema, and interactive activities where attendees can be fully immersed in the diverse world of the genre space. To officially become as an annual celebration, the event was created by veteran festival organizers Michael Lerman and Landon Zakheim, both who share a passion in connecting horror hounds alike and have a vision to provide rare experiences for fans around the world.
We’re incredibly excited to bring the film community and enthusiastic audiences we’ve been cultivating over the last few years to The Overlook Film Festival. We’re so grateful to the Timberline Lodge for providing such a gorgeous iconic venue in the beautiful location of Mt. Hood, Oregon where our unique, experiential celebration of all things genre can thrive.
It’s a truly inspiring time for horror cinema. Our jam-packed program of festival favorites, fresh discoveries and bonafide classics from features to shorts to live events will be presented in the one-of-a-kind atmosphere we’ve built through our various other genre projects. We really can’t wait to announce our lineup next year.
The Overlook Film Festival takes place from April 27 through April 30, 2017. For passes, packages and much more information, you can visit the festivals website.
